Newland WD3 Portable 2D Badge Scanner & Data Collector


Newland WD3 Portable 2D Badge Scanner & Data Collector

The all new WD3 'Badge' barcode scanner is part of Newlands versatile 'Nwear' range of data capture products designed to maximise data capture productivity within any type of retail, hospitality and event attendance applications.

The WD3 is a feather-light scanner that packs high-performance in a compact yet sturdy design that can be used as a stand-alone device enabling data to be stored on the device, or it can be connected to a host device via Bluetooth.

Outstanding performance

Equipped with Newland's latest megapixel 2D scanning technology, the WD3 can effortlessly capture high-density, high-volume and distorted barcodes printed on paper or displayed on the screen.

Batch collection

The WD3 can be set to collect barcodes and store them in the memory to be uploaded to a host via a Bluetooth or cable connection. So, if you’re delivering bulk items to a single delivery point or taking the time to create a little inventory, the WD3 can work without the need for live host interaction.

Precision scanning

Acuscan can be set on the WD3, so the red laser cross aimer only decodes the exact barcode you want it to. Even on a cluttered picklist or when many smaller items are stored close to each other, the user can be sure their picking out the correct item all the time.

Compact and light-weight design

The WD3 is extremely thin and lightweight. So not only does it feel comfortable to hold, but if it is attached to the lanyard or retractable belt clip supplied, the weight and bulk are not noticeable.

High protection and industrial structure

The WD3 is built into an IP65-sealed and drop resistant (1.2m) housing with no moving parts that fortify itself inside and out. It can be used in all weather and cope with bumps, knocks and drops.
